Norwich University's tradition of excellence and proud military heritage that began at its campus in 1819 is reflected in its online graduate programs that are offered to adult learners across the country and the world. All of the Norwich online programs offer relevant, focused curricula, and small, interactive classes. As an institution long associated with innovation in education and the preparation of the nation's business, government, and military leaders, Norwich faculty and its graduates continue to contribute to the development of the economic, political, and social infrastructure of the nation and the world.
Electrical & Computer Engineering:
Electrical engineers have the greatest variety of devices to work with of any field of engineers. They work with nano-components, so small that you need a microscope to see them, and with mega-components that are so large they need to be housed in buildings the size of a football field.
And the applications for these devices are just as wide. Electrical engineers design and build computers, cell phones, and networking equipment to interconnect a host of devices. They have designed instruments to help medical doctors diagnose and cure diseases. Others work on devices that increase the efficiency of energy used in manufacturing plants. In fact, almost anything that uses electricity, whether it is from the smallest battery, a wall plug, or an ultra-high voltage transmission line, relies to some extent on the work of an electrical engineer.
Computer engineering is interdisciplinary, bridging electrical engineering and computer science to bring hardware and software together. Computer software engineers first analyze the needs of users and companies, then design, construct, test and maintain the necessary software or systems through knowledge of electronics, programming and coding.
